Australia in the 1950s. Living a seemingly normal life to those on the outside, the Dohertys are actually spies. Both parents worked for ASIO, and as part of their daily life, they used their children to watch for unusual activity, to remember number plates, to pose in places to allow their parents to take photos of people of interest and other, unusual behaviours. And to not ask questions.
With My Little Eye recounts these strange events in their lives and looks at the lasting effects of a life of clandestine behaviour on the adult Doherty children. It’s fascinating.
